PREFACE TO 1915-16 EDITION. 

WE have again diligently and carefully collected and 
arranged useful information regarding Buteshire 
as it is to-day — with its officials, householders, and business 
people — and once again have pleasure in giving the com- 
pilation the honours of the Press. 

Notwithstanding the strain and economies of the 
Greatest of all Wars, we have managed to produce oar 
Directory as complete as formerly. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the distribu- 
tion of their announcements facing the ordinary reading 
matter, we hope, with continued prompt receipt of orders, 
to be enabled to keep permanent this decided benefit. 

Our desire is to overlook no interest ; and therefore, 
"we respectfully solicit notices of alterations or additions 
as early as possible, so that these may be given effect to. 

This Directory is a much more important publication 
than many imagine. One of the earliest publications con- 
nected with Buteshire was a Directory, issued about one 
hundred years ago in conjunction with Renfrewshire. The 
printing of portions of it about forty years ago in one of 
the local papers made such interesting reading, that the 
idea of having such a present-day record for Rothesay took 
the popular fancy and led up to the present compilation 
for the whole of Buteshire. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the libraries of Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, 
Dublin, Cambridge, Oxford, cfec., and in numerous business 
houses and agencies in busy centres throughout the king- 
dom; so we are particularly anxious that nothing of benefit 
to Buteshire be omitted, but that all interests have a good 
show, and everything be brought thoroughly up to date. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. Notwithstanding the distractions of 
the world war, we have b-.-.en enabled to present " business 
as usual " here It is scarcely that, of course, but we are 
intact, will survive the blast, recuperate, and flourish again.

— Bute, the most populous; Akran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrshire Const; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
mar.nock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothk.say and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14 151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In

Parish of North Bute. 

'"PHIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-1 village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Banliatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891. 
(For Courts and Court Officials, Justices of the Peace, and County 
Boards, see County Lists).

11th Annual Congress, 'Frisco, 1915 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to be held in Edinburgh this year, 
but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris last, year, is the 
means of transferring the 11th to Sau Francisco now. To commemorate the opening 
of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition is being held there, and a Tuta Pacifika Esper- 
anto Kongreso has developed into the 10a Tuta Mondo Esperar.to Kongreso. The 
language of peace and universal brotherhood is spreading, and the wide-awake Ger- 
mans were prompt to spread, by its means, their version of the cause of this terrible 
war. They are (?) an innocent peace-loving people, who had a cruel war forced upon 
them, and the chilk-like and bland Teutons were forced to defend their homes from 
ruthless destruction (!) Esperanto is not known by everbody, but it is much easier to 
learn and comprehend than any national language, and there is not a single civilized 
country in the world without an Esperanto group or individual members, and to these 
the German version went, and was translated into the languages of the different coun- 
tries. These communications through a neutral language were taken to be unbiased, 
whereas the communications in English, French, Russian, Flemish, or Italian and the 
languages of the south-east of Europe were believed to be prejudiced. Truth and 
righteousness have much to overcome, but tbey will prevail.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



In Part III of our Directory, we do not aim at 
printing such complete lists of Householders as will 
be found in the official Voters' Roll, published two 
or three months hence. While, however, we miss 
several names of the hundreds of persons whose 
houses are closed during the Winter months, we 
print those new ones which will not appear in 
the Voters' Roll until they have tenanted their 
houses for more than a year.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years, and the date of its issue is gradually becoming mid- 
way between the original dates of issue of these two 
publications. We begin our researches early enough, but 
the airy Summer publications must hustle out while the 
sun shines. The Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent resident. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
foi them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for probable additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports, 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue of the Directory 1 

We are not yet enabled to publish all the information that we 
desire, but that does not prevent us compiling (in antici- 
pation of greater reciprocity) more than we at present 
print. 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland."

Bute County Dire ctory. 

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. 

" It is splendidly compiled." — Campbeltown Courier. 

" Being invaluable, it should have a large circulation." — Argyllshire Advertiser. 

" Contains a large amount of information carefully revised to date." — Glasgow- 
Herald. 

The Directory is indispensible to business people in the county." — Rothesay Ex- 
press. 

" Useful local annual. A useful book of this kind is a convenience that no bnsy 
tradercan afford to be without. ' — Buteman. 

" Every little parish has its own pages in the book. It contains much general in- 
formation relating to the County of Bute. It is well worth the price— one shilling." 
— Ardrossan Herald, 

Messrs Higgie and Co, are to be highly complimented on the production of a 
volume which, for reference, should prove invaluable to all classes of the community. 
— Greenock Telegraph. 

" Will be found invaluable to those having any connection with Rothesay ; and as 
for the many visitors who are attracted to the island, they could scarcely get on with- 
out it." — Cieeaoek Herald. 

"If the importance of a place is to be judged from the local directory, as claimed, 
then the County of Bute in general, and Rothesay in particular, must be said to occupy 
a high plane." — Evening Times. 

" The Directory should be indispensible to residents in the Corrnty of Bute, and all 
who have official or business relations with it. It is really a valuable volume for the 
nhabitants of the County of Bute." — Largs and Millport Weekly News. 

" Indeed in this book is to be found all the information which the most inquiring 
person requires to know about the county. The matter is well arranged. Such a book 
is a necessary part of the equipment of every office which does business with islands 
whose interests are so closely associated with those of Glasgow." — Evening Times. 



Besides the opinions of the Press we have received spontaneous testimony of the 
usefulness of the Directory — from professional and business gentlemen and pleasure- 
seekers, not only in the county but beyond it. 

A Rothesay public official wrote : — " The Bute County Directory has many times 
proved most valuable when visitors have come to me inquiring for the addresses 
their Rothesay friends. In fact, we could hardly do without it." 

An Arran postmaster wrote : — " I am much obliged for your courtesy in sending 
me the Bute County Directory, but do not think it reasonable that I should have all 
the benefit of the information you have compiled with so much care and expense entirely 
free of expense, so I take the liberty of enclosing postal order for Is 4d for cost and 
postage.

Shorthand, 

Typewriting, 

Esperanto, and 

Business Methods. 



MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUCTION are conducted 
during the two Winter Quarters—October till December and January till 
March. 

ShOPthand will continue to be taught with a view to its subsequent 
usefulness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting special attention will be devoted to Punctuation and 
Capitalisation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical 
Printing, and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiri ig to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used fo r 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of th e 
Universal Esperanto Association, is in touch with important regions all over the worldi 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwith.standiting their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be "Peace 
on earth, good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of great 
tribulation. Its efficacy in tracing missing friends and making new ones has been 
repeatedly evidenced — even in this terrible War. 

Business Methods. — Instruction given in other Up-to-Date Business 
Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Profession, and the 
gronnd-work and minutaea have long been familiar to a practical Printer like Mr 
Higgie. 

Messrs HIGGIE & COY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 

are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the- 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners. 



CLASSES CONDUCTED 

From OCTOBER till MARCH, 

at 22 Bridge street.
